Edmundston is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream come true no matter what kind of fall adventure you’re looking for. Plan your visit to this northwestern gem, so you can capture the striking colors of the season and immerse yourself in the area’s rich history.

 

 

Located at the confluence of the Saint John and Madawaska rivers, Edmundston has everything to meet the expectations of outdoor enthusiasts, even in the city. For a peaceful riverside outing in the heart of nature, the Green River and Upper Madawaska are always ready to display their beautiful fall foliage.

 

 

For even more outdoor fun, Edmundston also has golfing, hiking and cycling trails. Some of the top picks for your list are Club de golf Fraser Edmundston, the Méruimticook Trail and the Prospecteur Hiking Trails. The Madawaska Trails network offers 60 km of single track mountain biking trails, while the Petit-Témis Cycling Trail, with softer inclines, is the perfect spot for leisurely rides amongst the falling leaves. If motorized adventure is more your style, there are ATV trails aplenty weaving throughout the region. 

 

Mountain Biking

 

 

If you’re looking for an opportunity to relax and take in the colours, go to the exquisite
New Brunswick Botanical Garden. From October 1 to 4, the Grande Grouille Pumpkin Festival will mesmerize the entire family with more than 3000 illuminated pumpkins throughout the gardens, enthralling decor with plenty of animation, circus acts and musical performances by local artists, and scrumptious food and drink.

Downtown Edmundston is a walkable touring space featuring the local arts centre, historic churches, and a built environment showing off public art and the area’s distinct culture. But, make sure you’re prepared to be sidetracked by bakeries, craft brews, delicious coffees, vegetarian delicacies, and other fantastic local food offerings.

 

 

If you want to uncover where it all started there are many historical sites to choose from within an hour’s drive of the city centre, in the Saint-Basile District and in Haut-Madawaska (Baker-Brook, Clair, Saint-François and Saint-Hilaire). A few “can’t miss” options include, the 150th Anniversary Heritage Room Museum in the Village of Saint-François, and the Museum of the Religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph in Saint-Basile.

 

 

Edmundston is a great place to find a path less-travelled. It’s a slice of New Brunswick that brings out our best, with a history that is all its own.
